Mid-June 2017 Newsletter
Hello, and a joyous mid-June to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter. The photo above shows me
as a young child, to go along with the theme of "where we came from".
What from your past do you want to keep, and what do you want to release?
Today's issue has an article about the possible relationship
between what happened when you were born to your life now.
Could your birth experience still be affecting you today?
Recently while I was waiting for a haircut, another woman
was talking about her young grandson, how it was difficult
to dress or undress him, as he started screaming whenever
a shirt was pulled over his head. I gently asked "Do you
know the details of his birth? I'm wondering if the
umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck, and that
terror is still with him".
It turned out this was indeed the case -- his fear of
dying was activated by the pulling on his neck, so no
wonder he screamed! When we're being born we have no life
experience yet, no history of problems faced and overcome
to use as a context for what's happening now. Everything
is total and global, All There Is.
We learn by making assumptions given what we're faced with,
then refining those assumptions as new data comes in. If you
landed on another planet and met someone grumpy, it's a logical
conclusion to think "the beings here are unfriendly", or "they
don't like humans (or women, or tall people, or whatever category
fits you)". Being born is certainly entering into a new world.
Based on what happened then for you, what might you have concluded
about Life, or yourself?
Like any other experience, what it means is what we
decide it means. This is often unconscious,
and goes unchallenged as if it's a fact. If the
person you thought was your true love breaks up
with you, maybe you decide you're flawed and unworthy of
love. Or maybe you decide that person didn't appreciate
you, and now you're freed to find someone who does.
Neither of these is more true than the other.
I've known a few twins, who shared those 9 months
of developmental space and time inside their mothers
with another. One had trouble being alone -- could
this be related? One had a twin die in utero while
she lived, and I always felt a sense of trying too
hard from her, as if she wanted to prove her twin
didn't die in vain, freeing up the maternal resources
so she could thrive.
Once I read that Cesarean births, being so suddenly removed
from the mother, may cause the child to grow into someone overly
afraid of change. I've also heard it speculated that folks born
this way have trouble with decisions. Whatever your birth experience
happened to be, and whatever personality traits might have grown
out of that, I think it's only a place to start, not something
you're stuck with. To live is to grow and learn and evolve.
Birth is just the beginning of that, and your life will be what
you make it. So why not make it joyous and fulfilling?
To read about how my birth probably scared me, and maybe negatively
affected my vision, then something I did to start to heal that,

Let me know what you've wondered about concerning energy medicine
or vision or dreams. I'll be glad to write a short article addressing
that topic. Thank you to those who have sent me questions, or see
a question you asked me in a private session written about here.
You're helping many other people!
Enjoy the remainder of your June.
I'll write again in a couple of weeks. Take care!
